Publisher Description

In the tense aftermath of the 1992–1995 Bosnian War, U.S. diplomat Bill Farrand was assigned the daunting task of implementing the Dayton Peace Accords in the ethnically divided Balkan territory of Brcko. This compelling narrative pulls the reader intimately into the author's world where, over three tumultuous but successful years, he was given wide authority to restore travel across former ceasefire lines, return thousands to their destroyed and confiscated homes, conduct free and fair elections, and reestablish multiethnic government bodies—all in a climate of fear and obstruction. Farrand highlights the complex challenges peace builders confront, especially the role of civilian leadership in a post-conflict zone torn apart by ethnic cleansing. His story is rich in lessons for all those studying or engaged in peace building abroad.
